Konami’s put out new shots and video of the Wii version of Pro Evolution Soccer 2009, and it looks pretty bloody good. The cut-scene graphics are a tad overboard, especially when you’re used to looking at Animal Crossing. Which we are.
Take a look. It’s out next year.

FIFA and PES. PES and FIFA. It’s the ball-shaped war that’ll never, ever end. How does EA plan to win this year?

Get it now from Gamershell. It’s a 1.06Gb download, which is probably a small price to pay. Blurb:
Players are able to select fully licensed Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Barcelona club teams, or the licensed Italian or French national sides. All new visuals with completely remodeled players and animations, and new physics routines to ensure the ball behaves more realistically have been included, while the AI of the CPU sides has been enhanced to provide an ever evolving challenge.
What are you waiting for? Football, innit.

Football War Day entered a new phase this afternoon, as Konami’s John Murphy laid into FIFA, saying concensus suggests PES is, in a nutshell, better.
“It is all very well for EA to say that FIFA is making great strides, but general opinion suggests that they still have a long way to go before they can match the intuitive and absorbing gameplay of Pro Evolution Soccer,” Murphy told MCV.
“That is not to say that we are resting on our laurels, though. PES 2009 has a vast number of new additions that elevate it far beyond anything anyone else is doing.”
Balls, eh? More through the link. Thanks, Kotaku.

After the break. We’re going to keep this brief, because we’ve got a stupid amount to get through. Take a look.

Konami’s put out a beast of a press release on PES 09 today, detailing a Become a Legend mode, billed as the biggest addition to the game this year.
‘Become a Legend’ solo mode… casts the user as a midfielder or striker within a match. Using a default vertical camera view, the player starts as a rookie pro at the start of their career, and charts the many highs and lows of becoming a professional player. An extension of the popular ‘Fix’ mode, the ‘Become a Legend’ mode sees the player operate in their favoured attacking position, and work as part of the overall team as opposed to controlling every member as in a normal game.
There’s tons more through the link, detailing everything new in the soccer game this time out.
PS3, 360, PS2, PC and PSP this autumn, with Wii following next spring.

According to this Winning Eleven blog post, PES 2009 will release on the US on November 12.
Apparently a “close friend” of the site got this nugget “hot off the press.” There’s been no official announcement.
No date’s been given for Europe as yet, but it’s Games Convention later this month so you might get more then.

Update: Just asked Konami about this and we were told that until it’s announced for Europe, there’ll be no comment.
As if it wasn’t going to happen. The game’s listed for Wii on Konami Japan’s site, as you can see on GoNintendo. If you recall, Wii wasn’t included as a platform in the game’s formal announcement. That’s it, really.

Not sure if these are the real deal, but they look as though they might be. CNG4U’s posted what are apparently the first screens of PES 09. They’re only menu shots, but you know what the game itself’s going to look like, right? Have a swiz.
